Gastric problems affect the stomach and its functioning. In Ayurveda, Agni, a Sanskrit derivation for digestive fire controls your experiences, emotions, impressions and even expressions. This largely depends of the typeof food we consumeand affects our sensory portalslike eyes, ears, nose, tongue and skin.
Our body remains healthy when there is a balance of Agni in our body. The existence of Agni or the digestive fire creates healthy tissues that reduces and eliminates waste products or Srothas and produces a subtle substance called Ojas. This substance means strengthand immunity playing an important role in the overall development of the individual.
If our body is weakened through low levels of Ojas or strength, we lack in the productivity. This can be caused through less amount of food intake, lack of activity, negative emotional energy or unhealthy daily routine.
Once the levels of this substance go down, it produces toxins that get accumulated in our body. In Ayurvedic terms, a harmful substance known as “ama” is produced that becomes the root cause for most of the diseases.
